Two of a kind

IHT, North Korea beats up on Bush:

In Monday’s tirade, Pyongyang’s diplomatic spokesman called Bush “an idiot, an ignorant, a tyrant and a man-killer.”

“Bush’s assumption of office turned a peaceful world into a pandemonium unprecedented in history, as it is plagued with a vicious circle of terrorism and war,” continued the statement. “The president’s aides and allies are a typical gang of political gangsters.”

The spokesman concluded darkly that the U.S. president was “a bad guy.”
